Some new backyard species for 2017

I finally got around to looking through some more of last years moth photographs and have identified another 8 new species.  Not all were seen in my Calgary backyard.  I found 3 new species in one weekend while visiting relatives in Lethbridge.  In addition, I found 1 new species from 2016.

I’ll post some more photographs from last year in future blog entries.
